Android 13 based OxygenOS 13 Open Beta released for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro

Today, the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro from last year, get to experience Android 13 for the first time in Public. Following a few weeks of limited beta testing, the firm is today releasing the first OxygenOS 13 Open Beta release for the pair.

OxygenOS 13 is, as you may know, based on Android 13. It was initially revealed in early August, along with the OnePlus 10T. The first Open Beta for the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will be accessible initially in North America and India, with the EU to follow “in the near future”.

Remember, as with all beta software releases, that things may fail, stop functioning, crash or be generally frustrating. As a result, testing this on your primary smartphone is not advised.

Known flaws include carrier versions that do not operate with the Open Beta releases, a lighting issue and incoming call alerts that do not appear when an iPhone (!) is calling. However, the flaws discovered by OnePlus are only the tip of the iceberg; there are likely others lying beneath the surface.

If you decide to go forward with it, make sure your device is running the most recent version of OxygenOS 12 (build C.63). Keep in mind that switching to the Open Beta build will destroy all of the phone’s data. As a result, it is critical to back up your data before starting.
